I've also made this with bananas instead of apples, also added blueberries, walnuts, subbed the cinnamon for apple pie spice, etc... It's quite flexible. If you're using tart apples or want a sweeter sauce, just used packed brown sugar rather than lightly packed. You can really adjust to taste.

I forgot to add that this is good on just about anything. French toast, waffles, crepes, cake, ice cream. etc...

How to Make Butterscotch Apple Sauce

Step-by-Step

  • 1melt butter in sauce pan over medium heat. Add apples and cook until softened (about 5 mins depending on how thick your apple slices are). Add hot water. Mix brown sugar and cinnamon together (to ensure even distribution and keep cinnamon from clumping) and add to sauce pan. Stir frequently and allow to simmer and thicken a bit (about 5 mins).
  • 2Mix cornstarch in cold water until dissolved. Stir into apple mixture. Sauce will get nice and thick very quickly. Remove from heat. Add pinch of salt and the vanilla.
  • 3Serve warm (or cold, it's great that way too!)
